udall. >> thank you. good afternoon, mr. brennan. i can't help but observing that senator coats talked about being governor of new jersey. i think being governor of new jersey is a piece of cake compared to being director of the cia. i hope governor christi will take no offense to that. >> i have no plans to run against governor christie. >> thank you for your service. i have some comments i would like to share with you and then i will direct some questions your way. you have said that president obama believes that done carefully, deliberately, and responsibly we can be more transparent and still ensure our nation's security. i absolutely agree. the american people have the right to know what their government does on their behalf consistent with our national security, the presunks mption o transparency should be the rule. when we on the committee push hard for access to the legal analysis justifying the authority of the executive branch to lethally target americans using drones, for instance, it erodes the government's credibility to the american people. i want to tell you i'm grateful

. udall asked you. would you object to, and if so, why, to a public release to a declassified version of the committee's report? >> i would give such a request for declassification every consideration. there is a lot of information and those volumes with a lot of potential consequences as far as its public release. at the same time that we have a commitment to take care to, we also have a tremendous commitment to making sure that we keep this country safe by protecting its secrets. there are a lot of equities and operational activities, and it has to be looked at carefully. >> i would just say i agree with you that sources and methods and many of the operational details absolutely should never be declassified, but there is some basic principles in that report that i think is going to be very important for history to be able to judge. i would urge you to look closely at that. senator levin asked about waterboarding. let me follow up. in november 2007, you were asked if waterboarding was torture, and you said it is subjecting an individual to severe pain and suffering, which is the clas

. most liberal senators, blumenthal and udall, franken, murray. again, any big revelation there? >> well, i like al franken number three on the list because he's up for re-election in 2014. remember, that campaign six years ago was one of the most interesting, fascinating political elections of that cycle. and franken doesn't have a republican challenger yet but if he gets a good kand datcandidats a race to watch. >> tied with dick durbin there? >> yeah. franken doesn't do much press or national media attention but he still votes pretty along the liberal line. >> most conservative house members, todd akin, scott, blackburn, jeffrey landry. look at those states. missouri, georgia, tennessee, louisiana. >> very republican states. very conservative districts. >> how's someone from texas not on this list? >> yeah. there's some texas folks at the top but todd akin, seemed to make sense after the senate campaign he was the number one conservative lawmaker in the house. his comments certainly ratified that and certainly the vote ratings showed that, as well. >> most liberal house members, a 14-
the letter. ron wyden, udall and susan collins. michael isikoff obtained the controversial memo that concludes the united states government can order the killing of american citizens. he broke this story on nbcnews.com and joins me now. so, michael, this has been -- this has been a debate inside the administration for a while to ever go public with this or not. we know the president himself, when he was a candidate, was very critical of the bush administration when they were hiding legal opinions, having to do with detainees and torture and things like that. >> as were a lot of democrats. in fact, the release of the so-called torture memos was one of the democratic refrains for years during the latter years of the bush administration. and you look at this memo, which is an obama administration memo. first of all, you read it in its entirety. people can go on dotcom. it's really hard to see anything there that's -- that relates to operational security. it's not classified. it's purely legal arguments. so why has it taken until now for us to get a copy of it and let the public rea
this man, but it is tough for some democrats. i know senator mark udall and others have been days pointed in john brennan's lack of attentiveness to some of their concerns on these issues, so there are people in the president's own ranks and the ranks of his own party that are deeply concerned that there isn't a serious study and a sense of intro spekz about interrogation techniques. not just because of what john brennan did, but how they're going to approach it in the future. >> and in that world that's evolving, they want to know on what side of the moral line john brennan really falls. >> he answered in these interrogation interrogatories which were sent to him. excuse me. is about leaks. he acknowledged being questions as a witness, not a target, by authorities, by prosecutors on two leak investigations, one of them a big one involving the covert activity against iran, the technology. >> honestly in many ways i think this is maybe the hardest piece for john. white house officials frequently do unclassified background briefings for members of the press, as you know. the question will b

committee. some like senator wyden, senator udall, and a few others want to see those legal justifications. they can read them now. but by the way, under the rules set up by the justice department the staff and lawyers can't come in to examine them. only the senators can read it. they can't talk about it because it's still a classified memo. they couldn't ask brennan about it at all in the hearing. this is reminiscent in some ways of the way the bush administration briefed congressional leaders about the enhanced interrogation program. >> very similar. >> staff weren't allowed to come in. they couldn't talk about it. and what they were told and what they were not told became very, very murky. >> senator wyden took issue with the classified information provided to the senate committee. here it is. >> 11 united states senators asked to see any and all legal opinions, but when i went to read the opinions this morning it is not clear that that is what was provided. >> it seems we've reached the limit to the overside that congress can expect on this issue, or expect to offer on this issue. i me
